The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page. It is included for reference only. Do not refer to this site when using this text but rather consult the original edition (Skj where relevant).

Kómu til kistu,
kröfðu lukla;
opin var illúð
er þeir ílitu.
Sneið af höfuð
húna þeira
ok undir fen fjöturs
fætr um lagði
en þær skálar
er und skörum vóru
sveip hann útan silfri,
seldi Níðaði.   (eddic or germanic)

(They came to the chest, demanded the keys;
the evil was patent when they looked inside.
He cut off the heads of those young cubs,
and under the mud of the forge he laid their limbs;
and their skulls which were under the hair,
he chased with silver, gave to Nidud.
)
